114 - CAPE GAZETTE - Friday, September I - Monday, September 4, 2006 Christmas Joy program kicks off in Rehoboth Beach Christmas is a time for family, a time for giving and receiving and a time for remembering those who are less fortunate. Epworth United Methodist Church, with referrals from local nurses, social wol:kers, church members, the Cape Henlopen School District and Long Neck Elementary School, has been providing toys and cloth- ing for children 11 years old and younger.
